Holiday Rental House
The Space PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE LISTING DETAILS, HOUSE RULES, AND CANCELLATION POLICY BEFORE BOOKING! The home is small but charming at only 728 square feet. Referred to as a “shot-gun” house due to its long and narrow build, this simple architectural structure was brought to America by Haitian refugees in the early 19th century. Although technically, it is a one bedroom house, there is a full-size solid wood futon with a Sealy posture-pedic mattress that sleeps very comfortably located in the back room. The bedroom has a king-size bed. This house can sleep between 2 to 4 people comfortably by way of the bed and futon. Both the bed and futon mattresses, box springs, and sleeping pillows are encapsulated by protective cases for personal hygiene and safety.

Although technically, it is a one bedroom house, there is a full-size solid wood futon with a Sealy posture-pedic mattress that sleeps very comfortably located in the back room. The bedroom has a king-size bed. This house can sleep between 2 to 4 people comfortably by way of the bed and futon. Both the bed and futon mattresses, box springs, and sleeping pillows are encapsulated by protective cases for personal hygiene and safety. All bed linens, including comforters, are laundered after each guest visit. Children are welcome, but please note that the only childproofing in the home is outlet covers. There are no cabinet locks. The kitchen has all the modern amenities needed to cook and clean up, such as a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and a Keurig coffee maker. There are place settings and flatware for up to six, all the necessary pots, pans, and utensils needed for cooking, along with simple spices and oils as well. I provide one Keurig coffee cup per guest per morning. The home also offers free, secure wireless internet and a Roku streaming box complete with a subscription to Netflix and HuluPlus, in addition to hundreds of free Roku channels. There is no cable. This is a Pet Free house designed specifically for guest use so there are NO personal belongings at this home meaning you can feel free to stretch out and make it your own. The bathroom has a spacious standing shower, but no tub. It is fully stocked with fresh linens, soaps, shampoo, toothpaste, Q-tips, cotton balls, toilet paper, and a basic hair dryer. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Lexington. It is less than 2 miles from most downtown attractions and new local breweries so going out and touring the city is easy, but the large double lot backyard allows for relaxing evenings at home. Guest Access Guests will have access to the entire house and yard. There is off street parking in the driveway alongside the house, but no parking garage. Interaction with Guests My interaction with guests will be little to none, unless requested. However, I live nearby and am always accessible by phone, if needed. There is a key-less entry system and a code to access the home will be given upon confirmation of reservation so guests may check in any time after 3 pm on the day of arrival. The Neighborhood Row house neighborhoods are not generally high income areas. Although I am comfortable in the neighborhood, it is blue collar, a bit rough around the edges, and can be intimidating to those more accustomed to the finer things in life. So, if you're counting on white picked fences and polo shirts, look elsewhere. However, things are changing with the addition of the new Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) replacing the old, historic Eastern State Mental Hospital (2nd oldest insane asylum in the USA). As well, there are at least three of Lexington's new artisan breweries within a mile of the house; Blue Stallion, West Sixth, and Town Branch Distillery. This home is a great value considering its amenities and proximity to downtown, campus, Keeneland, the Horse Park, and the new Distillery district. Getting around LexTran is the public transit system of Lexington. There is a covered bus stop two blocks down the street from the house. A bus leaves every 30 minutes from this location to the transit center located downtown. Visit LexTran for details. Per MapQuest, the home is located the following distances from certain Lexington area attractions: University of Kentucky Student Center 1.8 miles Bluegrass Lexington Airport 7 miles Rupp Arena / Heritage Hall 1.4 miles Kentucky Horsepark 10.6 miles Keeneland 7 miles Center of Downtown Nightlife 1.8 miles I-64 / I-75 Split 11 miles Per local LFUCG zoning regulations, there may be no more than one rental in a seven day period at this property.More
